    08 Accord with 175k leaking oil at base of front (passenger side) spool valve/vtec solenoid. There is no gasket between where the base rests on the engine.

    Had my mechanic replace the VVTS on my 03' Accord yesterday to stop a slow oil leak and refill with full synthetic oil. It was driving fine until I got up to speed on the highway. Right about when I hit 70 mph the clutch started slipping. I took it back to the mechanic but want to make sure he...

    I have an oil leak at the base of the dip stick where it meets the engine block which you can see on included picture. I have had attempts, some by a mechanic I will not longer be taking my car to, which tried to alleviate the problem with resealing the Valve Cover to no avail (going on four...

    This is really just for fun, but haven't you always wanted to know when your VTEC has kicked on while you are driving around? I bet most people would be surprised to learn that the VTEC engages very often.. In fact, I would say the VTEC engages on almost every acceleration for the typical...

    Hi, Quick question. I purchased just the vtec solenoid itself (what is pictured, ebay part on left) to fix a very intermittent P1259 vtec malfunction error. Anyway the part of ebay was 30 bucks and is suppose to work with any 5th gen and 6th gen accord from 1994-02 4cyl. Just to note a...

    Hey everyone! I believe I'm having a problem with my starter. I have a 2001 Accord LX, I just changed the starter in April. When I turn the key, the engine does not turn over. The only noise I heard was a buzzing; I opened the hood and I believe it's the starter motor spinning. This lasts about...

    I have a 2003 Accord. Foolishly, I messed up the wiring to the automatic trunk release when a bungee cord got tangled up in the wiring bundle. I spent part of yesterday morning and today searching this forum for helpful information. I also blew the 20A fuse for the whole door lock system...

    Hey everyone I'm new here but not to this site, I have a 2001 Honda Accord V6 coupe.
